Take Two also gets a discussion after the company partners with SQUAD. Feedback from our listeners is read out as their opinion is shared on our decision to expand our show.

Despite sugar coatings from Aki and perspective changes from the Panda, beware for much cynicism and salt in this episode... After wishing Yuri Gagarin a happy birthday we revisit TRAPPIST-1 to dampen the spirits for many in our real-space segment. The NASA budget proposals cause mixed emotions for both...

In the absence of DigitalPsychosis we do our best to inject the silliness into this episode as we discuss our recent adventures in Kerbal Space Program. With the help of the live chat we throw out some, what turned out to be, bad guesses for the Secret Project that Squad has been working on for the past few months. The Read Panda has some obsessions over the Fallout series and gazebos while Aki explains how he is a second-hand vegetarian. Listener mail and Tweets are also read out. 0:01:39 -...

We run through our experiences with version 1.2 so far as well as giving a brief over view of the features.

In this episode there is no Kerbal Space Program or Astronomy discussion. Instead, we took the opportunity to talk about the Podcast itself without the usual live audience. Having run the show for more than a year now we thought it would be fun to reflect on our time in Boosters and Spacetape since it started in June 2015. A lot has changed since the first episode; from recording quality to content. We look back on our journey so far and we also discuss where the show is going. BST grows...

We discuss our progress in Kerbal Space Program as always before we move on to KSP development and news from the modding community. We share some big news with the departure of HarvestR (the creator of KSP) from Squad and wish him well on his new ventures.

At the time of recording, KSP 1.1 was still going through its release phase and we discuss whether we feel the game still needed some work. There was also limited discussion on mods as we patiently wait for them to trickle through with their updates. We also report on our own KSP progression and what we've been up to in our streams. Dan (Aki) is still away but is counting down the last few weeks before he returns home to his studio where he can get back into the swing of things properly. As our...

Without our constant rudder, The Read Panda, it was up to Aki, Digi and Mator to run show. We're very excited to discuss the pending release of KSP 1.1 (or what we call the REAL 1.0). We highlight the new features of 1.1 and whether it has lived up to the hype. We also say farewell to the trusty single retractable undercarraige that has...

We're back for a new series of BST. Having been away for a while we all have a great deal to talk about in both KSP and Real Space.

We discuss our progress in KSP and gush over the updated Scatterer mod, among others. As usual, we dabble in real space with Oak's Space History Corner and Aki's Conspiracy Theory of the Week.

In this episode we had a heavy discussion about the stock bugs that plague KSP. And we also covered the contentious subject that is MechJeb. Although the Dev Notes have left us reasonably dry for discussion, MaxMaps shared some exciting hints in his weekly SquadCast. There is the usual discussion on real space with our most interesting conspiracy theory yet. We also answer questions submitted by our listeners.
